    Regarding the flowers...I also had the same issue. I found out it's because I was asking for a SPECIFIC flower that might not be local or in season for them. I then asked them (Aurora) if they had VERY SIMILAR looking flowers to the ones I chose as long as they were free (i.e., included in the package).  She always had a very, very close option to the original flower I chose. Everytime! So I recommend asking her for flowers that are similar to the ones you are aiming for.  You can't ask for "daises" or "dahlias", because they probably don't grow down there and you're mostly paying for shipping costs.  Instead ask for a flower that looks like a daisy or dahlia. They definitely will have something to make you happy.  All of our flowers were beautiful!  Hopefully I'll get my pro pics soon so I can post the review before some of your weddings. :)

        You seriously have been a godsend to me right now. I'm trying my best to not start going bridezilla about stuff, but I am finding the communication thing between the coordinator and myself a little frustrating. Thank you, I will take your advice and ask for something similar to what I wanted, which was gerbera daisy's.....although it's funny that they are listed on the website as being one of the flowers available. Anyways, I will see if that helps. She has yet to respond to me as to why there would be an additional cost. I really thought choosing just one type of flower would make things much more simple and easy.....and in all honesty I don't really care, as long as they are pretty.....and look much better than the selection in the guide! lol

        Thanks again!!

              well trying the "similar to" approach doesn't seem to be working for me either. What I do find funny is that I sent a pic of a bridesmaid bouquet (so much smaller than a bride's bouquet) from a florist in cancun that quoted me $45 for the bouquet. According to Aurora a bouquet similar to it would be $240 + tax. 

               

              Not impressed!

                Hi! I am getting married on May 27th. Did you have any request for you to leave your lanterns?

                    What is everyone getting their bridesmaids to wear for shoes for the wedding?  I was going to put them in heels till I considered the sand factor, haha.  Just curious what others did and are doing.  Are heels a possiblility??

                      My girls are going barefoot and then wearing juicy couture flip flops for the reception.
